Graduate Programs

Brazil has more than 100,000 researchers and scholars engaged in research at private and governmental institutions. Brazilian graduate programs deliver 13,000 PhD degrees per year and are continuously evaluated, using an internationally recognized methodology, conducted by the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES).

The programs are evaluated every three years, with scores ranging from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). Programs with scores of 3 or below are closely monitored by CAPES and consistently re-evaluated while deficiencies are improved, or the programs are closed. The evaluations of all 2,581 Brazilian graduate programs can guide your search for the best institutional affiliation for your field in the country. In addition to program evaluation information, the CAPES website offers detailed information about graduate programs at Brazilian institutions and contact information for individual programs.

Below are the major fields of study at graduate level in Brazil.  By selecting a field, you may view more specific areas of study within the major field, institutions and locations that offer courses in that field, contact information, and evaluations of programs of study at various institutions.

As the CAPES website is in Portuguese, translations of key terms are provided below:
